Blocking A Network Enabled Plugin on Individual Sites (16 posts)

    I know there are a number of ways to block access to plugins you don't want your users to have access to, this is not that problem.

    I have a "moderation" plugin Network Enabled, which creates a "Flag this as Inappropriate" link under posts and pages. I want this enabled everywhere, and don't want to have to enable it on each site individually, BUT... I don't want it showing up on my sites on the network.

    Is there a way to block a network enabled plugin from working on a site-by-site basis?

    Thanks.

  2. Oddly, you may have to use the block access tricks :/

    If you network activate a plugin, it's on for all sites, end of story. Doesn't even show up at all... Selective Network Activation is kinda the idea you want, and I've never heard of it. Possibly one of these may work similarly?

  3. I want this enabled everywhere, and don't want to have to enable it on each site individually, BUT... I don't want it showing up on my sites on the network.

    I don't understand how you could have it enabled everywhere and not show on sites in the network?

  4. I think he wants it to be enabled on certain sites (all BUT his) and hidden so people can't turn it OFF.

    The hidden part I assume is a given, out of virtue of the plugin being Network Enabled.

    Ipstenu is correct, I want the plugin to be enabled 99% of the time, on the numerous elementary student blogs hosted on my network, given it's a MODERATION plugin that is keeping tabs on the content "multi-site-wide"; but I don't want it to appear on sites like this: : On sites like that I know the content is appropriate, and the "Flag if Inappropriate" links on the bottom of each post seem ill-placed.

  6. then network activate is not what you want. cuz it;s all on, not on selectively. ;)

  7. Yeah, but is there another way to have a plugin set as ON for all new blogs?

    I wonder if the Default Plugins Options would do that....

  8. at least one of the plugin management plugins does that. but that's not network-activate, it's just on for all but the ones you want, and it won't hide it from the users.

    unless you want to hide the plguins menu completely on the user blog side (which may be better anyway)

    I think that's the solution. The plugins menu is already hidden from users, so deactivation isn't an issue. It's the granular switching off I'm looking for, without having to individually manage the plugins on each site. I'll look into the plugin management plugins; that looks like the best route. I do obviously prefer the network enable/mu-plugins route as it makes deactivating for updates easier. I'll end up with a hybrid of the three solutions I imagine. Thanks for batting this issue about with me. Incredibly helpful.

    On further reflection, in this particular instance, I think I can probably block/hide the moderation link in the CSS on a case by case basis. Plugin management is a nice solution for the embedly issue I'd been running into though,in which the plugin needs to be activated site by site in order to work.

  11. as it makes deactivating for updates easier

    side note: when you run the auto-updater, it deactivates plugins for you. or it's supposed to.

  13. You are in the wrong forum - talk to the person you purchased the blog from.

    You probably bought it from wordpress.com. This is the .org forums, for people who who are running wordpress on their own servers.
